There is a trick to taking photographs with arms. Make sure that your arm is always away from your body, like resting on your hip. If it is flat against your body, it doesn’t matter how thin you are, it will look fat.
Here is a picture of me at halloween with hand on hip. But there are more subtle ways to accomplish this. If you peruse In Style magazine, you will notice that the actresses have "poses" that they repeat for every red carpet. Notice how they never squish their arms agains their body.
This is very important to know for your wedding pics.
But, I am a trainer and I will give you my secret to good arms: light weights 2-3lbs tops.
Start with little, evil arm circles in with your arms in a t but slightly in front of your body. Do 10 one way, 10 the other, then 10 small pulses up and down. Then bend your knees slightly, with a flat back lean slightly foward and put your hands to your sides with your palms facing the ceiling. With straight arms, pulse your arms and inch up and down 30 times.
I work with celebrities all the time and this does the trick. It’s good to have the weights around the house so that you do this every day. It’s good to do the day of your wedding so that your arms look good in pictures.
The other workout would be pushups on your knees, but with your butt in alignment with your shoulders and knees: 10 pushups.
Then go to your toes for a standard push up and make your arms really really wide for chest pushups. No saggy boobs here!
Finally, go to downward dog and do little pushups with your elboes to the side.
If you really want results, do 20-30 tricep pushups.
Best workout ever!
